Samsung Galaxy S4 – rumours and some interesting leaked pics

So just three days to go before its big Manhattan launch and once again the web is ablaze with chatter about what Samsung are going to include on their new Galaxy S4 flagship smartphone.

Today’s big story is the leak of a series of pics on a Chinese forum website that purports to show a user’s hands-on with the new handset.

As with all these rumours you can take them – or leave them.

First up though the specs associated with the handset, as claimed by the leak, tally with many other sources.

  • It really doesn’t look too different from the Galaxy S3, but that isn’t a bad thing. Personally, I look forward to seeing if Samsung has indeed added a 1080p display to the new phone. The commute to and from work at DISH takes some time, so I like that I can keep up with all of my live and recorded shows on the way. I can do this with the DISH Anywhere app, which allows me to stream when and where I want from my DVR, so it would be great to see my shows on a higher resolution display.
